Patriotism ain't just about placing your country's flag on the roof of your car.



Special entry in conjunction with Malaysia Day. I’m gonna be serious today.

Some people claim that by placing the Malaysian flag on their car shows their patriotism, their love of the country. Nothing wrong with that. But labeling those who choose not to place the Malaysian flag on their car as unpatriotic is far from accurate, I must say.


You see, my sons.. Patriotism isn’t just about placing as many flags as your car roof can bear. Patriotism isn’t just about screaming “MERDEKA!” out loud on the 31st of August. There’s more to patriotism than that..

Patriotism ain't just about placing your country's flag on the roof of your car.. it’s about not screwing up your country’s surroundings with litter and unnecessary garbage.

Patriotism ain't just about placing your country's flag on the roof of your car.. it’s about refraining yourself from acting like a disgrace at home and abroad.

Patriotism ain't just about placing your country's flag on the roof of your car.. it’s about preventing yourself from wasting the nation’s resources -  like turning off your lights when you leave the office, reducing the use of paper at work and cycling to work (yes, I know you guys will say “but, our climate’s too hot and humid to cycle to work..")

Patriotism ain't just about placing your country's flag on the roof of your car.. it’s about paying your taxes on time and making good use of public facilities. Yeah, I know.. Our public facilities still have a lot of catching up to do.. which leads us to…

Patriotism ain't just about placing your country's flag on the roof of your car..
it’s about giving out your best effort and contributing to making a better change.  "Malaysia Ke Arah Kuasa Besar Dunia."



Showing my patriotism. Too bad I didn't have the national team's jersey.
But I have this! US national team's 2006 home jersey. So much for patriotism eh?

 "Eh, kalau ko patriotik sangat  apasal ko tulis entry kali ni dalam bahasa penjajah ha, setannnnn??"
